SOFTEK® is an integrated front suspension and robotically welded steer axle that work together to form an integrated torsion system. This lightweight system delivers enhanced ride, stability and handling characteristics while reducing weight and maintenance. SOFTEK utilizes STEERTEK NXT, Hendrickson's fabricated, box-section front steer axle.
SOFTEK is rated for up to 10% off highway, other applications must be pre-approved by both Hendrickson and vehicle manufacturer. This system is anti-lock braking system (ABS) ready. STEERTEK NXT is compatible with industry standard wheel ends and brakes. Contact Hendrickson or vehicle manufacturer for availability.
